How To Choose The Best Twin Mattress
Although twin mattresses are commonly associated with children, it is not uncommon for adults to have twin beds that require this type of mattress. Twin beds and mattresses were very popular during the 19th century when they were firstly invented, mainly amongst married couples who were able to get a comfortable and relaxing night’s sleep without bothering their partner with their movement. More than 100 years later, twin mattresses are still very much appreciated.
1. Decide On The Budget
Twin mattresses are often more affordable than queen, king or California King size mattresses, and for a good reason. Depending on your bed frame (single or double), it is important to come up with a budget, as this will help you find a mattress that does not exceed the set costs.
2. Check The Store Policies
Each mattress store and authorized vendor has its own policies when purchasing a single or double twin mattress, and it is important to check them before making your purchase. Most of them allow you to try them at home, others give you a 15-minute in-store trial, while other store offer a 30-day money back guarantee, on a “no questions asked” basis, if you are not satisfied with the mattress.
3. Select The Right Firmness
The quality of a twin mattress can be easily checked by looking at the overall design of the mattress, as well as by checking its level of comfort. If you choose an innerspring single twin mattress, then make sure that it is well padded – also, the more independently encased spring coils there are, the more support it will offer and the more durable it will be over the years.
